Gates opened, horses took off.. mine seems to have been carted off and sent to the glue factory. LOL

I think the sticker removal was intended as a joke by someone.. I hope, if you like it then why remove it right? It does not make the tank suddenly look horrible. I don't think a small sticker makes a nice tank like yours ugly so.

Yea for sure...definitely seems to be a losing battle, haha. Oh well though, it was fun, not to mention it finally got me to become a member which I've been wanting to do for some time now.

Here we go my fellow hobbyists! EDIT: Well apparently the contest is actually running through the 22nd, not the 15th. That's just when the joining ends. Either way, I sure do need some help.

Congratulations on the engagement! Getting married was the best decision I've made. Any closeups of your tank inhabitants you could share with us?

Well wishes from here.

Congrates on the engagement. Guppies to come later.

Hey thanks a lot! Yea this is definitely a big step, but after three years and a few tight situations I am confident this will go to forever! Sorry to hear about your first wife Wespastor, glad everything is good now

Heading off to church right now, but I'll get some good pics of the fish later this afternoon. I volunteer at the church BBQ every Sunday so I go an hour early to set up and stay an hour late to serve.

I like your 75g. Personally I like alot more hardscape, driftwood, rocks, etc. That being said I'm not as good at planting as you are, so I need the hardscape for transitions. Your plans for your other tanks would definately be awesome and something I would follow. My wife is at her limit withthe tanks, the space they take up and the time I spend on them. Unfortunately a rack isn't feasable as I have a 75g, a 46g bow, and a 29g in addition to my 10g and 20g. I had to put the 10 in my closet!! Luckily I have a big closet.
Congrats on the engagement. My first marriage tore me up and I had to see a therapist and take quite a long period of time off of work. I swore I would never become attached to a woman again much less get married. My wife (we were married on May 13) spent 3 years patiently changing my mind. I know I did it right this time. It's amazing what the right woman can do for you! Good luck on the RAOK.

Hey thanks, I know how it is to try and deal with the boss ladies with regards to increasing your aquatic lifestyle, haha. I have all of this, plus a 55 and a 4G in our one bedroom loft. Basically our fashion scheme has become fish. Congrats on the new marriage, hope it all is working out for ya!

Here's some pics of the fish stock. Couldn't get a snap shot of some one them as (especially the tiger barbs) they tend to move quickly. The first one is the male of my breeding pair of GBRs, then my BNP breeding tank (still this dirty with water changes every other day), then a couple shots from the 75G, and lastly my Elegant Cory (I have 6 of them in a 10G).

Also, in preparation of a potential loss, I created my first DIY co2 system. Seemed to go together easy enough. I certainly didn't reinvent the wheel, but I like the idea of the rubber stoppers far more than the hole in a bottle cap. Seems air tight and all. My drop checker turned light green by days end. It's only about 1bps and it runs 24/7 so hopefully the tiger barbs and ottos don't get gassed at night.

hey! Good luck on the quest for Co2! Thanks for the tips on rams, too - think I'll see if they get it right after a dozen times or so...lol In the meantime I'll set up a 10g as a standby tank for eggs...
